*Ask Jen: Monkeying Around Edition

Jim asks, "Is 'monkey picked' tea really picked by monkeys?

One of my co-workers is drinking 'Monkey Picked Oolong Tea' and says it's
really picked by monkeys. I think that's bull, marketing or legend. Maybe
all 3?"

Looks like it is mostly legend. And I have to say the marketing strategy is suspect. Who wants a monkey touching their tea? If I saw a monkey touching my tea, I'd be like, "Hey! You get your bitch-ass back in the kitchen and make me some pie!"

Kin demands to know, "Why are you a Democrat?! They're evil!!"

Yeah, and your point is...? I like being evil.

Do you have a question for me? You can e-mail it. If I know the answer, I'll answer it. If I don't, I might make something up.
